Man Utd’s strong XI for first Premier League game of next season with four new signings

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, plans to spend big during the summer transfer window now that the Premier League season is over.

Under Erik Ten Hag, Manchester United had a great Premier League campaign and qualified for the Champions League after being out of the competition this year. However, the Dutchman has already stated that if the Red Devils are to claim their first championship since 2013, expectations must be heightened. Express Sport now examines how the 53-year-old’s team would appear at the start of the 2023/2024 season with four new additions.

Goalkeeper: De Gea
David De Gea has not yet signed a new contract with United, so the seasoned goalkeeper is technically free to go this summer.

The Spain international is still expected to remain and extend his spell with the club, though.

Last season, De Gea made some costly mistakes for the team, with slip-ups against Brentford and West Ham standing out in particular.

He remains one of the top goalkeepers in the world of football, as evidenced by his Golden Glove trophy.

De Gea ought to take over as Ten Hag’s starting goalkeeper for the upcoming campaign, though it will be intriguing to see what happens with Dean Henderson.

Defense: Frimpong, Kim, Martinez, Shaw
Jeremie Frimpong, who shone for Bayer Leverkusen as they finished sixth in the Bundesliga standings, has drawn significant interest from United.

And since Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s future is uncertain, he might show up in the summer.

This year, United has seen a strong center-back pairing develop between Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane.

However, they are fans of Kim Min-Jae, and sources from Italy claim that a deal to sign the South Korean international is imminent.

If hired, he would replace Martinez, and Luke Shaw would remain at left-back.

Midfield: Mount, Casemiro, Fernandes

The Blues are forced to trade the England international this summer or risk losing him for free in a year because they have not yet reached an agreement on a new contract.

And Mount would be a useful player to pair with Bruno Fernandes and Casemiro in the middle of the park.

The 24-year-old’s signing won’t be cheap given reports that the Blues will demand somewhere around £55 million.

With Mount potentially following in the footsteps of Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic by switching from Stamford Bridge to Old Trafford, United are aiming to reduce that sum.

Forwards: Rashford, Kane, and Antony
Harry Kane’s desire to join United is an open secret.

Despite Tottenham having a terrible season, the star has continued to excel for his team.

Kane won’t be simple to sign, but if the Red Devils agree to fork over somewhere around £100 million, it’s possible he’ll go.

Like last year, Antony may anticipate starting the majority of games on the right wing.

And with his outstanding achievements this season, Marcus Rashford won’t be replaced from the sideline anytime soon.
